Synopsis


Working late at the office, accountant Norm prepares to head home after entering a final few numbers into his laptop. But as he enters the abandoned parking garage, Norm senses something strange is afoot and morphs into a Seelengut, or a sheep-like creature. He cowers in fear and is attacked by an unknown figure, his body dragged out back and dropped into a wood chipper as he screams out in agony.

Meanwhile, Nick arrives back at home to an empty house. He calls Juliette and is a little put off to discover her out grabbing a drink with the girls; she didn't even call or leave a note to let him know. Juliette then realizes she may have acted in error and asks the girls what exactly is going on with her and Nick. They say that he asked her to marry him... and have no idea why she said no.

Reverend Calvin shows up at the precinct to report a theft. There was over $350,000 in the account for his church, and all the funds are missing. According to the bank, all the funds were transferred out Friday night, and whoever made the transfer was within the system. Calvin reveals that the transfer was completed on a laptop owned by Norm, their church accountant, who generously had been doing their books for free. He seemed innocent enough; but now the money is missing, and Norm is nowhere to be found.

This looks like a pretty open and shut case, but Hank and Nick still need go through the motions. They go to Norm's old place of work and talk to his boss; Norm definitely hadn't been displaying any abnormal behavior. Him running off with all that money seems very out of character! But when the workers find what broke the wood chipper, the case takes on a different tune; a metal hip stopped the crushing of Norm's body. After Nick and Hank do some further investigation on Reverend Calvin, they discover that the reverend was involved with an identical scheme at his past church. This can't be a coincidence.

Hank and Nick go to the church to try and shake the reverend up a bit, letting him and his church members know that this case has now turned into a homicide. At this news, the congregation transforms into sheep-creatures, and Reverend Calvin, a Blutbad once they realize that Nick's a Grimm. A wolf leading a flock of sheep? Seems pretty strange, even for the Grimm world! When Calvin and Nick speak in private, he claims that it's simply an unfortunate coincidence that this robbing has happened to him twice. His assistant, Megan, even says he was there with her at the time of the murder Friday night, working on the church activities calendar.

Hank and Nick go to Monroe for the 411 on Seelengut. Monroe claims that they're not the violent type, but any group with a herd mentality is worth getting worried about. And a Blutbad leading Seelengut? Sounds like a recipe for lunch. Nick notes that maybe it takes a reformed Blutbad to know one and sends in Monroe for an undercover gig off the record.

Monroe shows up at the church as a lost and confused homeless Blutbad. Calvin takes great interest in Monroe, claiming that he sees a struggle in him that he went through himself. Calvin offers to let Monroe stay the night at the church, which he accepts. And from his room, he spies Calvin and Megan kissing in secret - maybe Megan's in on his scheme. Nick warns Monroe to be careful, and Monroe promises he won't overstay his welcome.

As it turns out, Megan is in on Calvin's scheme and wants them to run away with the money before it's too late. But Calvin claims they can't quite yet, at least not until he frames Monroe as the one who killed Norman, leaving Monroe dead with Calvin's laptop. Then, they can leave and spend the rest of their lives in the sun.

The Seelengut storm Calvin's office just in time, throwing around accusations and uncovering Norman's laptop; angry and frustrated, the sheep channel their herd mentality and attack. Nick and Hank arrive just in time, saving Monroe from a similar fate. All 25 Seelengut admit responsibility for killing Calvin, leaving Nick and Hank with a very strange ending to a very strange case.
